InStyle Stamps April Blog Hop

Wahoo! It is my first ever blog hop and I am so excited!

InStyle Stamps is hosting a blog hop and a forum chat. The chat has already started over at the forum and will run ’til 11pm EST (4am Saturday way past my bedtime!) on the InStyle Stamps forum.

For the blog hop the DT have made containers for our ‘Contain Yourself’ challenge 🙂 Here is mine and it is a container for my coloured pencils (been needing one for ages!)


I’ve used the fabulous Melanie on her swing coloured with my promarkers and copics.


Here are some other views for you:

And this last view is of the whole picture before I stuck it onto an empty dried milk powder pot 🙂 I’ve hand stitched the flower stems and stamped butterflies, ladybirds, dragonflies, bees and even a worm. Final touches were made with some Shimmerz paints and some green paper cut out to look like grass 🙂


When you have finished looking at everyone’s work then don’t forget to go back to the InStyle Stamp blog to vote for your favourite DT make. Make sure that you leave a comment as well to be in with a chance to win a prize. The voting stays open until 11.59pm EST 25th April (4.59am BST) and the winners announced on the 26th April.

The DT with the most votes also wins a prize 🙂 – Vote For Me! Vote For Me! – Sorry, did I say that out loud? LOL!

BUT that isn’t all. There are more contests with prizes going on at the forum now. How can you resist?
